Please feel free to add your own input, suggestions and what not.  Two things I would like to throw out there, first, a weekly innings cap and second, a live draft.  The innings cap would be a small protection against getting hosed by someone who doesn't/can't get their lineups set.  And the live draft is just a fun time.  Oh, and a third suggestion, using only one league to draw from.  If eight is as many managers we can get, then, a smaller pool of players to draft from would make it a bit more of a challenge.

Is the draft still automatic? I remember last year just receiving my team ready to go

Btw... Gjk might not make it or may be late..... I know he logs in but the twilight game has come to a halt without him and he mentioned some carp interfering IRL

UCG, the draft is automatic by default.  A live draft is a lot of fun and very easy to set up and run.  However, for those who are unfamiliar with the majority of players, a live draft could lead to a long season.  I will be participating in at least two live drafts, so, if we auto draft here, I will not be sad.

Thanks.  Hopefully it was the losing one.

I'm hoping to stay out of the cellar this year.  I did alright last year coming in forth.  At least I didn't get passed in the standings by a guy who actually understands more about cricket than baseball.

All right gentlemen, we need one more manager.  We need to have an even number to cue the draft.

Still need one more folks!  Step right up and sign in for your fair share of abuse...um...erm...fun!  That's it, fun!!!  And we need to set a date for the draft, live or auto pick.  Need to start ranking players.
